Viktoh used to always hang around Olamide and YBNL during the early days.
There were even some rumors then that he was the one who introduced Lil Kesh to Olamide. He was just a dancer and part of Olamide’s street entourage in those days. If you wanted to see his face, all you had to do was watch any video from any YBNL artist. Especially Olamide.
Viktoh was a quite popular figure even though nobody seemed to know what he was all about. He was just one fine boy who was always around them YBNL boys. Nothing more. Until 2016 at least.
Then around 2015, he featured on Lil Kesh’s smash hit, “Efejoku” and did a song himself that was pretty well-known too (“Skibi Dat”). YBNL had a lot of wonders then. Chinko Ekun, Adekunle Gold, Lil Kesh. If Viktoh turned out to be a musical sensation, he’d just be joining the list.
But it would seem that was never destined to happen because Lil Kesh left the label after his debut album in 2016 and Adekunle Gold left too. Viktoh, who didn’t exactly have a contract, hung around for a while and tried to make music in that time.
But within a year or so, all that was over, with Olamide bringing in new artists (Lyta, Limerick, Davolee, Temmie Ovwasa). For most people, that was the last time they heard of or from Viktoh.
Where Is Viktoh Now?
Well, Viktoh is just there. Not signed to any record label, of course, and not active with the music either. Maybe he has a job now, or he doesn’t, nobody knows.
What we do know is that from time to time, Viktoh is always on Instagram giving updates to his 477,000 followers. Sometimes, he makes TikToks and shares snippets of his unreleased songs.
He hasn’t released anything this year and the last song he put out was called “Wasted.” That was his only release last year. Before that, in 2020 he featured Zlatan on a song called “Nor Nor.”
Viktoh hasn’t really released anything worthwhile since, and his one single a year schedule seems like something an unserious artist will do. He has also promised to release an EP and now calls himself King Cupid.
Above all, he seems to be doing fine. Music is definitely over for him, though.
